Netflix’s ‘Fuller House’ Somehow Made an Even More Terrible Promo
Netflix’s first official promo for its Full House revival Fuller House proved … perplexing, at best (even a little scary), so it wasn’t going to be long before the streaming service followed up with a better look at the returning series. Or, you know, doubled-down on its wildly ridiculous promotion with Kimmy Gibbler, DJ and Steph doing the Nae Nae.
Yep, if ever you wondered what family values Fuller House might extol with a new generation of Tanners, or perhaps how the ‘90s sitcom staple would keep itself topically relevant, Netflix thought the answer to that question lay in Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber dancing to a nine-month old song well past the point of pop-culture parody. Now, throw in Bob Saget doing the Macarena, and baby, we’ve got a stew going!
So reads the official synopsis:
In Fuller House, the adventures that began in 1987 on Full House continue, with veterinarian D.J. Tanner-Fuller (Candace Cameron Bure) recently widowed and living in San Francisco. D.J.’s younger sister/aspiring musician Stephanie Tanner (Jodie Sweetin) and D.J.’s lifelong best friend/fellow single mother Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), along with Kimmy’s feisty teenage daughter Ramona (Soni Nicole Bringas), all move in to help take care of D.J.’s three boys — the rebellious 12-year-old Jackson (Michael Champion), neurotic 7-year-old Max (Elias Harger) and her newborn baby, Tommy Jr (Messitt Twins).
Gaze, gaze into the horror above (and below), and stay tuned for the Fuller House premiere on February 26.
